Lots of good stuff in this interview

BS: There were never nights when you thought the band played extremely well?

DK: I mean, I always had fun. But I was also always comforted by the thought that it was going to be judged by Deadheads and not by people who were �outside the family� because I felt in that light it didn�t hold up. Within the Grateful Dead/Jerry experience it worked. I mean, I�d see them rocking out, way in the back of the auditorium, these silhouettes just rocking away, and I�d think �my god 17,000 people rocking out, even way in the back,� so something must have been happening right! And please don�t get me wrong, for all of our weaknesses as a band, we had some great nights! We had some really great nights.

Thanks for the article. Nice ending to it from Kemper. "Being in the same room with Jerry was a pretty damn wonderful place to be." Jerry sure had the way of ending of relationships, didn't he? Have someone else end it for you. Pretty lame of the people around him not to say "Jerry tell them yourself". The thing about terminating a working relationship is that you may want to work with that person later. Obviously Jerry was not tuned into or care about that. My musical hero but maybe too a great teacher on close relationships, on how not to do them.

Also found the part about Jerry not talking at shows to be revealing and oh so true.

That's one of the best interviews about Jerry, full of insights.
"The audience just wanted to be in a room with Jerry. They didn't care if they were hearing fast music or slow music...it didn't matter if it was good or bad or who he had on stage with him. The crowd didn't come to see me or John or Melvin. They came to be in the same room with Jerry."
